    My wedding was 10 years ago but we paid $15 a head for a 2 course meal in a very nice private section of a local RSL club. They gave us a choice of about 8 main meal options which were simple but lovely (chicken vol e vents,lamb of some kind, a nice dory done in an elaborate way etc)They charged us $100 to hire the section for the night which included a free DJ, a huge dance floor and a private bar. We had a mud cake for the wedding cake as dessert

    If we had to pay for it? Who else would?!? Ooh the parents! Yeah right

    We will get married when we get around to it, 5.5 years of being engaged and 3 children later it already feels like we are married so we will probably just go to the registry office, have a few nice photos taken by a photographer and then go out to dinner at a nice restaurant, about 10 guests...shouldn't cost more than $5000 even if I tried!

    If I wanted an expensive wedding, I sure as hell would not expect anyone else to pay for it. In fact, I don't expect anyone but us to pay for our own wedding.

    Our wedding is costing about 10k. I'd rather put that on the mortgage, but getting married is important to my partner.

    I'm getting married in Jan next year and my fiancé and I have kept costs down to 6k. It's important to us but with bub on the way now we really want to spend the money on it so I'm making as much as I can and only using professionals when we have to ie. photographer.

    Ours cost $17K which isn't huge, but we paid for it all ourselves and before we had a child and mortgage. I wouldn't spend that much now, of my money and certainly not anyone else's.
